PlayStation Plus serves up free 'Furi,' 'Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell' in July

PlayStation Plus subscribers will soon receive a free copy of the PlayStation 4 version of Volition’s superheroic, open-world action game Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, along with a varied collection of freebies for the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.

Service subscribers will also get early access to Paragon, an upcoming multiplayer online battle arena game developed by Gears of War series creator Epic Games.

Starting on July 5, PlayStation 4 owners with an active PlayStation Plus subscription will get free access to Gat Out of Hell, a 2015 spinoff in Volition’s Saints Row series. Taking place after the events of Saints Row IV, Gat Out of Hell puts players in control of returning series stars Johnny Gat and Kinzie Kensington as they take on a series of surreal open-world missions.

Like Saints Row IV, Gat Out of Hell equips players with superpowers that allow them to fly long distances and take out groups of enemies in a swift, violent fashion. Players who complete Gat Out of Hell‘s campaign will get a glimpse at storyline elements that introduce Volition’s recently announced series reboot Agents of Mayhem.

Also free for PlayStation 4 owners next month is Furi, an action game that mixes melee combat with elements from “bullet hell”-styled shooters. Furi will make its PlayStation Network debut on July 5 as a free download via PlayStation Plus.

July’s PlayStation Plus lineup also offers a pair of free PlayStation 3 games, including Ubisoft’s Western-themed first-person shooter Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood and Fat Princess, a real-time strategy game that originally premiered in 2009.

PlayStation Vita owners, meanwhile, can look forward to a free copy of Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines, a console-style role-playing game from Phantasy Star Portable series developer Alfa System. July’s final PlayStation Plus game is Prince of Persia: Revelations, a PSP port of 2004’s Prince of Persia: Warrior Within.

All of July’s free PlayStation Plus games will be available for download when the PlayStation Store updates on July 5.
